Perfect!! – The bar is perfect !! the selection of wine was classic .. I just love going to kirkwoood all time I go downtown.. I love the appetizer and sometimes if I go there at the right time..i get them for free !! Love service you have there .. keep it up !
Truly satisfying! – We had a very busy week so we headed to this restaurant for a treat. The food was scrumptious and we were very pleased with the service. I am not a beer drinker so I did not worry about their beer selection. Overall, we were truly satisfied.
Food and Fun – My wife and I had the pleasure of checking out new Vinocity menu tonight and were blown away! Flavor all over the plate! We just about demolished whole appetizer list with the help of some great wine and brew. Check it out, you will have fun.
Super new menu! – Had dinner at Vinocity last week and tried a couple of new items on their menu that I thought were outstanding. The sliders were yummy, as were the mussels and a fried ap served in a cone type vessel...this was my favorite. I dont remember the name but it had all types of fried seafood, limes, mushrooms, anchovies etc. This really was good and I will most surely have again. Tried a new wine called Ouixote...OUTSTANDING! I love Vinocity.
WOW!! – I think Vinocity is WONDERFUL!! I love all the food and the bloody mary will knock your socks off. My wonderful husband and I enjoy it so much we had them cater our wedding in May!! They went over and beyond to please us. All the guest at the wedding raved about the food - they even booked another wedding from one of my guest that enjoyed it so much!!
If your looking for good food and drinks I would highly recommend trying this place out
I really want to like this place, but..... – I really want to like Vinocity since they are in my neighborhood and when they first opened I had some good meals, but lately it is very hiit and miss (apparently citysearch considers the word hiit inappropriate???) and I definitely think they are overpriced for the food and type of restaurant. I have friends that won't even go anymore after some bad experiences. They also have a really poor beer selection. They need to either add more taps and get some good micro brews or lose at least half of those big name beers they carry that can be had at every other boring bar in Atlanta.
Consistently great food & service. – I'm so lucky to live near Vinocity, when we are too tired to cook, it's so nice to have this great little gem of a restaurant around the corner. We've been going over the past year and the food has been consistently very good. When our family comes in town from out of state, we take them to Vinocity and our family is so impressed we have such a great place in the neighborhood. The Vinocity Club is great for a sandy, and their burgers are excellent, although I think the stand out is the warm potato salad side. The shrimp and grits are also excellent as is the Reuban. I love their weekend brunch, the blueberry scones in the bread basket are to die for. I can also vouche for the belgian waffle with strawberry butter, the crab cakes benedict, and the proper southern breakfast - All were very good! So if you haven't been to Vinocity, come on down to Kirkwood and give it a try!
Solid Food and Great Service – I've been in Vinocity a lot and have never had a bad experience. The food is always solid. The sandwiches are great. And I am very much in love with their pasta salad. Even the edamame is good. The drinks are always good too. Geoffrey makes some pretty mean drinks back there and pours a near perfect pint of Guinness. The manager Mitch is always attentive and really takes care of his customers - guests really. And the owner John is a nice guy. When there he goes around making sure everyone is having a good experience. If you read the rest of my reviews you will see that I tend to be pretty picky. And I am not easily made happy with most restaurants. But the truth is I like just about everything there is to like about Vinocity. I hope they do well because they are a great addition to the neighborhood. Good food. Good drinks. Even good music. So there . . . my first positive review on here.
Do not, I mean do not waste your time!!! – Like many other reviewers, I do not usually sit down and write reviews, but this was especially bad. First off, I booked the "reservation" on opentable, I really don't understand why I needed to do that, there were a total of 6 people in the entire place. Without writing a novel, here is what we experienced:
1. We ordered a "cheap" priced bottle of wine for 30 bucks, they brought out the 2007 version, the menu said it said it was the 2005 series, that was slightly annoying.
2. The poor teenager that served us had absolutely no idea about how to serve a bottle of wine. I am no wine snob, I actually mostly drink beer, but at the very least train your staff (at a wine bar) about how to open, present, and pour a bottle of wine. He screwed up all three. I remember when I was 18, knowledge about presenting a bottle of wine was not at the top of my priorities list.
3. Hmmmm $15 for chicken fingers?? Well I actually can't review the food because we, never ate. We walked out. Not only did the poor soul screw up the bottle of wine, but the glass was dirty, and there were things floating in the glass. Disgusting. I never ever walk out of restaurants. I was a server for several years, so I have compassion, but this was over-the-top horrible. There are no excuses for incompetence!!
Like I said do not waste your time on this joint. My personally opinion is that they will be gone by the end of the year. There is too much competition in the restaurant biz in and around Decatur, I just dont see how this place could survive.
Its got the good stuff, holla if ya hear me – Although I don't know if the meal price of $$$ encompasses the entire breadth of the menu at Vinocity, I do feel like there are gems on the menu worthy of that particular pricing scale. Of the many times I have graced the establishment with my presence, I have been greeted with friendly, neighborhood smiles, knowledgeable service, and great food. I have readily recommended the restaurant, and they're great bloody mary's, to all of my friends. Heed my suggestion and try it out for yourself.
